Dishes That Are So Hard to Cook, They Made Us Question Our Cooking Ability

Okay, let’s be real here. All of us, at least once in our life, have googled “easy to make food at home” and felt like an incarnation of Gordon Ramsey after making our “easy 3 step pizza”. But let’s raise the stakes for a bit. Let’s talk about some of the most difficult dishes you’ll ever attempt in the kitchen.


Okay, read this carefully. A whole turkey stuffed with duck, stuffed with chicken. Plus you have to remove all the bones without damaging the appearance of the bird and have to cook the chicken perfectly but at the same time not dry up the turkey. Bit of a twister, innit? So much of a twister I became British for a second there.

Bearnaise Sauce

It’s a sauce. Just another sauce. But, it’s made in a glass bowl over boiling water and has eggs in it, so if the bowl gets too hot, you have yourself some scrambled eggs and a big failure of a bearnaise sauce. Not just another sauce now, is it?

Baked Alaska

Ice-cream coated with a sponge, topped with delicate meringue, and baked. Sounds like a delight. It would be if it weren’t so tricky. You have to place it in an oven for long enough such that the meringue outside is nice and firm but the ice cream inside isn’t melted. How does one not melt the ice cream, I’ll never understand.

Khanom Chan

It’s probably the most refreshing cake I’ve heard of. A Thai cake made with coconut, tapioca, arrowroot extract, and lots of love (awww!). Here’s the tricky part though- it’s a layered cake, so to form the layers you’ve got to let each layer steam enough to set but still be a little jellylike before adding the next layer. Now that’s one love story that asks for some serious effort.

Calling out all the Gordon Ramsey wannabes right now. Make these at home and then we’ll talk!

Crispy and crunchy Namak para

Ingredients required:
Maida/All-purpose flour – 1 cup
Ghee – 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Ajwain(carom seeds) – 2 tsp
Chilled/cold water to knead the dough
Oil for deep frying

How to make namak para:
1. Add flour, ajwain, salt, and ghee in a wide bowl. Mix with your fingertips until all ingredients combine and resemble a breadcrumb-like texture.
2. Gradually add chilled water and mix until you get a soft and smooth dough. Keep aside covered for about 15 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a wide pan for deep frying.
4. Divide the dough into equal portions.
5. Take a portion and roll it into a thin circle. Dust flour as and when needed. Roll it as thin as possible.
6. Using the cutter(you can use your pizza cutter or a simple knife, too), cut first vertically, then horizontally to form small diamonds. Carefully separate them and make them ready.
7. To check if the oil is at the correct temperature, first pinch a tiny portion of dough, and add it to the oil if it rises to the top immediately, then the oil is at the correct temperature…else heat the oil for a few more seconds. Now gently gather the diamonds and drop them sprinkled.
8. Cook on medium-low flame and flip them for even cooking. Deep fry till golden brown and drain in tissue paper to absorb the excess oil. Repeat the process for the remaining dough.
9. Drain them on kitchen tissue paper and allow them to cool. Once cooled completely, store in an airtight container.
